  • Representing UMass Amherst at wind energy related competitions nationally and internationally
  • Helping to strengthen and build the presence of the Wind Energy Center on campus
  • Small scale projects related to past and present research projects at UMass Amherst
  • Increasing undergraduate students’ knowledge of the wind energy industry
